The Clever Woman

The joke below, to some it will be a misandrist joke, but it is not really of course; I post it as it says with humour something so very true these days about Governments, about the UN, etc., and the endless stream of Nanny laws that attempt to regulate our every thought and action. Many thanks to my Canadian cousin for sending this to me.

A man and his wife go to their summer cottage for holiday, him to fish, her to read and realax. The man goes fishing early in the morning, does well and after several hours he returns the boat to their lakeside cottage and takes a nap.

Although not familiar with the lake, the wife decides to take the boat out. She motors out a short distance, anchors, puts her feet up, and begins to read her book. The peace and solitude are magnificent.

Along comes a Fish and Game Warden in his boat. He pulls up alongside the woman and says, 'Good morning, Ma'am. What are you doing?'

'Reading a book,' she replies, (thinking, 'Isn't that obvious?')

You're in a Restricted Fishing Area,' he informs her.

'I'm sorry, officer, but I'm not fishing. I'm reading.'

Yes, but I see you have all the equipment. For all I know you could start at any moment. I'll have to take you in and write you up.'

'If you do that, I'll have to charge you with sexual assault, 'says the woman.

'But I haven't even touched you,' says the Game Warden.

'That's true, but you have all the equipment. For all I know you could start at any moment.'

'Have a nice day ma'am,' and he left.

MORAL: Never argue with a woman who reads. It's likely she can also think.

I could add another moral, it is time to question the Nanny State.
